Rome: Off the Beaten Path

Italy, Rome Guide (B): Rome: Off the Beaten Path

The amount of things to see and do (and eat!) in Rome seems to be never ending. My husband and I spent two weeks wandering the streets of Rome last spring, and I feel as though we only saw a fraction of what Rome had to offer. I’ve covered the more famous tours and sights in previous posts. In this post I will take a final look at some of the smaller, quirkier tours we took and some of my favorite places and pictures from the trip.

Whether you believe in spirits, or not, the Ghosts & Mystery tour is a must when in Rome. Don’t expect any Oujia boards or seances, though. This tour was actually a very informative and fun history lesson of some of the darker and more sinister events and deaths in Rome.

You’ll be with a smaller group of people, and the streets of Rome are quiet and still when you begin your journey at 9:15 pm. Your guide will meet you on the stairs of the Sant’Andrea della Valle church (which looks a bit eery at night), and wander through the streets of the Eternal City for about an hour and a half…stopping at various spots to talk about which brutal death happened there. (This tour was by no means a strenuous walking tour, it was very relaxed and leisurely.) ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
